It was good to meet you Paul and to do the tour on 150 on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and have made a note I must get myself down to Brooklands. It has been a long time since I visited.

It was good to meet you to and put a face to a name. You chose the right day to go, on Sunday it was heaving. I didn't leave until 21:00 due to the traffic congestion in the car park, let alone the local roads.

I realised to day I didn't take any photo's of 150 over the weekend as I was 'officiating'. I got some photo's of the Lanc's and the amazing Chinook display though.

I've had days like that! I'm sure that there are lots of great photos out there that show ZA150. The problem with having a great airshow is that shots of the static show are not the first to turn up of course.

I came with my son very early on the Sunday and what a great time

Image

Chatted to Shane who confirmed he got cold feet - my Dad's fault as he was a weight engineer at Weybridge who put a big steel plate under the flight deck as a counterbalance that was a heat sink (or so my dad said...)

The plane was wonderful, and I am not just saying that as its family DNA , and the hosts very welcoming. Thanks gents indeed.

I was a happy bunny indeed as the last shot shows. All things after that werent as good - ok, 9 merlins and a griffon apart

Many thanks for keeping her going and looking so well.

I'd love to visit again when you have had time to recover !

Keep up the good work chaps , my dad Bill would have been proud of you all.

Thanks for posting the pics. I forgot to take any on the day. I see you were very early as the car park behind the aircraft is empty.

These are few photo's took leading up to W & W
